Pisces News: 20 May 2016

What a wonderful weekend of diving we had last weekend! We had really awesome visibility and flat calm seas. We had quite a front that passed over yesterday and last night, along with a large swell, so gave yesterday a skip and are out today and tomorrow again. The water has been consistently around the 12 to 13 degree mark and the viz remains very nice. Very little wind is forecast for the weekend and SW swell of around 2.5m should deliver good conditions for a second week in a row! We are mixing it up again this weekend and are heading out to Whittle on Saturday morning, followed by Atlantis. Sunday sees us at the Princess Elizabeth first up, followed by the lovely PMB Reef – both sound like good two-tank combos to me!

 

Aside from our regular launches this weekend, we will be doing a pelagic trip on Saturday and we have two spaces open for this trip.

Also, we are hosting Georgina Jones for a Klipvis Masterclass on Saturday 21st June at 1500 – please let us know if you plan to join us for what will be a fascinating afternoon!

Neil lead the 0900 Free Guided shore dive last Saturday for eight happy divers. They dived the Clan Stuart and it was peachy and calm. If you would like to join us for the free shore dive this Saturday, please give Jacqui a call and let us know! We meet at 0900 and decide on the dive site on the morning.
